All completed applications will be evaluated as soon as possible, approximately within eight (8) weeks of the official filing date if applicable.
Applications will be evaluated based on program guidelines, content quality, the proposed project’s creative, multi-platform, interactive, technical and financial aspects, its marketing plan, and its multi-platform distribution, among other things.
The Quebecor Fund’s Board of Directors has complete discretion regarding the interpretation of the program guidelines as well as the evaluation and analysis of applications. The Quebecor Fund has no obligation whatsoever to justify or motivate its decision to refuse an application. The Quebecor Fund will not comment publicly on the reasons behind its refusal of an application unless legally obligated to do so.
An applicant whose project is approved by the Board must, within ninety (90) days of acknowledging said decision, complete a definitive version of the project’s financing. If said definitive financing is not completed within this period, the Quebecor Fund’s contribution may be cancelled, at the sole discretion of the Board of Directors.
An applicant whose project has been accepted for funding must sign an agreement with the Quebecor Fund. No obligation can be imposed upon the Quebecor Fund until said agreement is signed. The agreement will establish the conditions for the Quebecor Fund’s financial contribution, and the Quebecor Fund’s obligations will be limited to those expressly provided for in the agreement.
The Quebecor Fund reserves the right to request and obtain a copy of the completed production, at the producer’s expense.
An audited statement of production costs, if applicable, must be sent to the Quebecor Fund at the end of the production’s first complete financial year.
